White Tshirt Uniform | Recipe for Bfast Meal Prep

It’s a funny combo but we will go with it 😉 I love my basic white tee uniform, especially on the weekends when I am preparing for a busy work week! Prepping food has been a life saver while working full time and blogging so I am sharing my FAVORITE breakfast prep recipe today as well!

Tshirt ($11!!!) c/o | High Waist Jeans | HEELS | NECKLACE c/o | WATCH | BRACELET one, two |
Lips (Snob)


Tshirt and jeans are how I survive on the weekend! I don’t want to look undone though so I dress it up a bit to keep it functional and chic. $11 for a tshirt is a steal, this one has the cutest ruffle along the edge that takes it up a step! This necklace makes a great pop of color and keeps it fresh for Summer. You don’t have to wear heels like I did, although this is a favorite combo! Sandals wedges or booties are great as well!

I have been living in these jeans!!! Scored them for $15 HERE, keep your eye out for when they drop again. I wear a size 4 and they fit true to size. You can’t go wrong with this style! 


This is such a crazy time for Jason and I, food prepping is the only way we have found to not go out to eat every day and meet our health goals. The meal I have the hardest time with is breakfast. Let’s be honest, most mornings doing my makeup as to not scare my coworkers is a higher priority than eating a balanced first meal. Awful but true! That is until I made this recipe up, game changer! 

*Anything I use a dairy substitute for, you can use a dairy product for 😉


Preheat oven to 375
Spray a glass pyrex pan with non-stick cooking spray.


1 lb ground sausage
8 eggs
3/4 cup shredded hash browns
2 TB almond milk
Everything but the Bagel seasoning (Trader Joes)

Brown 1 lb of Sausage (We use the Jimmy Dean sausage from Costco, it’s a 3 lb package and we freeze the other two pounds for the next two weeks. The most budget friendly way to do it!).

Sprinkle sausage in pyrex pan creating one layer.

Toss frozen hash browns in the same pan from the sausage.

Cover for 5 minutes to cook through then uncover for a couple to get crispy.

Layer as a second layer over the sausage.

Beat the 8 eggs in a bowl and add the milk.

You can add a little salt and pepper to the egg mixture for added flavor!

Pour egg mixture over the layers in the pyrex pan.

Sprinkle “everything but the bagel” seasoning over the casserole.

* I don’t put shredded cheese on ours due to my allergy but you can at this point if you like!

Cook in the oven for 45 minutes.

Let stand for 5, then cut into the serving size of choice.

We pack ours in a pyrex dish in the fridge. Every Monday, I take a dish of my 5 breakfasts to work and keep in the fridge there so I can eat right when I get there. I have to shave down as much time in my morning routine in order to get to work on time;)

I hope this recipe helps you!

Did you know this about me? | Coffee & Chat

I haven’t shared a whole lot about me in certain areas of my life and I want to change that. Some of you know the sporty side of me and some of you know the fashion side of me. Here’s to learning more about each other!!! I play….



Tennis!!!! I played all through high school and tried to keep playing it in college, noncompetitively of course. I live a couple blocks from my old high school courts and have started to pick the game up again.

This sport is one you can pick up pretty easily when you haven’t played in a while, you WON’T be where you left off but it’s easy to remember the fundamentals. With picking this back up, I have realized how much fun Jason and I can have. I have forgotten how to have fun with him throughout the crazy schedule. Both working full time and having opposite days off is HARD WORK!

Tasc Performance has an array of options for workout clothes, I love the soft texture of them and how they adapt with movement. You know, it’s not pleasant when your tennis skirt gets stuck in the most obtrusive places. This one stays where it should, thank goodness!!!

The basics of the game so you can enjoy it too:


  • In the court: The court is set up with alleys on each side, this is an out of bounds area or if the ball hits outside of the back line of the court. When playing doubles, the outside lines of the entire court are the boundaries. Confusing, I know!
  • Game: When you serve it’s called love all. The first point won is 15. When you serve you call out, Love 15 or 15 Love depending on if you won that point. The game points continue on with 30,40, Game. If both have 40 points, it’s a deuce. Keep playing until one person wins by two points ahead of the other.
  • Set: 3 Games in a set. The person that wins the set, has to win by 2.
  • Match: The one who wins 2 out of the 3 games is the match winner.


  • Make it easy on yourself if you have never served before by dropping the ball on the ground and hitting it over the net, more or less an underhand serve. See HERE.
  • Overhead serving: see HERE.


  • Just get the ball over the net before it bounces twice!
  • Backhand or forehand, whichever way is easiest for you to receive the ball and send it across the net again. HERE are great tutorials on how to hit backhand and forehand!
At the end of the day, as long as you are having fun, that’s all that matters!

Because tennis makes me have the weirdest faces when I serve….
and I know my toe is over the line…it’s all for the pictures lol!

8 Practices for good sleep | Majesty Silk

8 practices for good sleep.

If I don’t get good sleep, I cannot function. No amount of coffee will allow me to function. Through this dilemma, I have found 8 practices that help me sleep…soundly! 8 practices for better more restful sleep. 8 practices for good sleep. 8 practices for good sleep. 8 practices for better more restful sleep. 8 practices for good sleep.

8 practices for better more restful sleep.

8 practices for good sleep.
I am the queen of no sleep or restless sleep. Anxiety and a creative mind get the best of me. I have a hard time shutting my mind off to be able to fall asleep at a good time. I seriously get my best work done at night, but that’s not feasible for a normal life. I have found eight things that have helped me fall asleep faster as well as sleep better. 
First, I use Melatonin on the nights I am having a hard time turning my mind off. I use 2 mg of THIS product. Trial and error is the key, I cannot take more than 2 mg otherwise, I will not wake up on time. Start with small doses and build from there. 
Second, try and stretch. Thank you to my high school yoga classes, I will stretch before bed if I am having a hard day. This is a combination of downward facing dog pose, child’s pose, cat pose, and cobra pose. 
Third, I try and drink a good amount of water through my day. I try and not down all my water intake at the second half of my day because then I wake up needing to go to the bathroom at night. I drink about 120 oz of water, which is about 5 of my venti cups from Starbucks.
Fourth, I try and put my hair in a scrunchy bun on my head. This is not a tight bun but very loose to not cause a headache. This helps me to relax my shoulders and neck when I am going to sleep. Also, if you have long hair, sleeping with your hubby can be a hazard from him rolling on top of your hair!
Fifth, take a 15 min wind down before you lay down. For me, this is when I do my devotions or put a face mask. It’s the time to start your brain to wind down. PS a great time to take melatonin.
Sixth, set an alarm. If you don’t have something to do the next day or have an early day, still set an alarm. This is going to keep you from sleeping in too much and not having motivation to get out of your bed in the morning. I set 2 alarms about 30 min apart. The first stirs me out of my deep sleep, the second actually gets me out of bed for my coffee. 
Seventh, find your rythm. It takes time and trial and error for different phases in your life. Currently, I enjoy a cup of chamomile tea before I sleep. A year ago, this didn’t help me. Find your rhythm and stick with it. Consistency helps your body relax and recharge. 
Finally, sleep on silk. I am talking about a luxurious pillow case. This is more than to just feel like royalty. Sleeping on silk helps reduce wrinkles, acne, frizz in your hair, and a cleaner smell for your pillow. I am loving my Majesty Silk pillowcase, these are such a great deal! I have tried a couple that don’t compare to these. Plus, can you say no to blush pink?! Jason doesn’t try to steal this pillow from me so that’s a win!

Please try these tips to help you sleep, sleep is important for complete body health!
